^ I agree, that a change is probable. But I wonder if PNE officials (or whoever's in charge of the food stalls) ever considered what would happen, once this was posted on their BLOG? ... http://blog.pne.ca/2019/08/01/food-glorious-food/ The soft serve is located down the list a bit.
We shall find out, eventually I guess.
Myself enjoying the Charcoal Soft Serve on "Out At The Fair Day", last summer's Fair. 2018 PNE QUOTE: "It was great! Tasted like coconut mixed with vanilla. But black throughout."
In my trying to figure out which is The Best Corn Dog at The Fair, they've added two new additions to this summer's choices. It will be a tough Corn Dog Challenge for myself (although I usually go with just the regular plain old corn dogs), with these new ones to try: Cheesy Ramen Corn Dog – It’s corn dogs gone trendy! The classic fair fave is wrapped in mozzarella cheese, dipped in batter, rolled in crispy ramen noodles and fried until golden brown… check them out at Next Gen Corn Dog.
Flaming Hot Cheetos Corn Dog – If you’re dying for some fiery goodness, look no further. This corn dog ups the game and leaves your lips feeling tingly numb. Head to Chicky’s Chicken to satisfy the craving!
^Yeah, every year they have quite the stuff available during The Fair. It always amazes me how some of these food trucks/stalls pack so much variety (and supplies) in their vehicles, for these events, etc.
Chicky's at The Fair, 2017.
Part of what they served. I had the BIG Pickle Dog last year. It was GInormous!
^ Yep, that's the Big Pickle Dog! After chomping half way through it, I thought this would be a good deal for two people. Don't think I'll have that again, since there's so many other "interesting eats" to try this year.
On the left, there. I also got a poutine from another stall, which proved to be A LOT of food for one person. But I ate it all, lol!
I also like a good amount of mustard on my dogs. Pardon the messiness, there.
Nearly done! And pardon if this is a little tooooo messy for some, to see. :P
I was going to go at least two more times to Playland, before The Fair started, which is this coming Saturday. Weather forecasts aren't looking too good, for now. Rain coming in by the time the PNE opens. Ick. Oh well. Life in Vancouver....
Five rides down, including the Coaster, still. I asked at the main gate if they knew what happened with the purple train, and they said, they still haven't figured out what happened a week ago. I then said "that's what comes from scrapping the Red Train!" and we all laughed. (myself, with bitterness)
Picked up some more popcorn and Pina Colada fudge. And got a few prize tickets from Monopoly Quarters Drop. Easy visit.
Back wall of Pizza Pizza. The pizza is 'that old' hmm? (o;
Still Not Sold. "But now with newer benches to block you even more!"
And that fountain keeps churning along. (Churning?)
A good shot, I thought.
PNE set up is slowly going on down there, somewhere.
No mountains for you, today.
Additional ride ticket/pass booths set up for The Fair.
Today's fudge was...
Noted with sadness. Hope most of this (COASTER!) is ready by Saturday.
But in better news, the Aurora Winter Festival is moving from its first year at Concord Place to Hastings Park this winter, promising a bigger venue, and 6 rides this year, in addition to the tube park, and skating.
^ Cool! (literally) I remember seeing that set up last winter, beside BC Place Stadium. I never went to it to see what it was, but I knew it was a special event thing for the season. And probably mostly for kids and their families, too. There was a ferris wheel as part of it. And everything was in white, too. So maybe I'll make a visit this time 'round.
As for The Beast ^^....<sighs>. Playland is having an awful time with their rides this season, including the recent shut down of Coaster. And they're not getting rid of (i.e. selling) Corkscrew yet, either.
So it just sits there, SBNO.
What a world, what a world. And the PNE opens in four days? Eep.
